The Verkhovna Rada made amendments on budget. Two months of the crisis, two governments, two finance ministers. The govt failed to change the crisis situation.
They solved their problems at the expense of ordinary people. Just a few examples and numbers. Expenses for benefits and subsidies are cut by UAH 8.2 billion, assistance to low-income families and people with disabilities by 1.3 billion, and subsidies for social protection of teachers by 1.5 billion UAH.
Those who suffer from quarantine the most have to tighten their belts even more.
Teachers are going to get about 4826 UAH for working remotely. It’s an absolute mockery.
What did they decide not to save on? For example, they increased the funding for the Ministry of Internal Affairs (195 million). A coalition of Avakov and Zelensky is working. Watch the video of people fleeing the observation and once again evaluate the appropriateness of such funding.
The financing of the State Fiscal Service is doubled up to 927 million.
And the debts, of course.
3.3 billion was added to the servicing of the national debt and in general this year they will pay UAH 450 billion.
Contrary to the budget code, 296.7 billion from international financial institutions is pledged as direct unconfirmed income.
This is their anti-crisis strategy. “Do not look for logic here, pay off the debts for us”.
By the way, did someone read the Action program elaborated by Shmygal? A document or rather a postcard without numbers. Only the words “we will introduce, must provide, continue to develop.” And so each of their “strategies” looks like – lies and populism in a beautiful media wrapper. Only changes adopted to the budget illustrate it better.
